I Loved It!
The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart is a unique twist on the suspense drama. It has romance, some darkness, and a very unique setting.
The first two chapters in this book really laid out who our main characters were and really allowed me to connect to both of them. When we met Deacon and the Gravediggers I was like wow, what am I getting into with these guys? I knew it was going to be fun ride with all the guys with all their secrets and the different personalities, but Deacon really stood out to me. When we met Tess my heart reached out to her in a few different ways. She’s strong yet quiet and she’s sick of being taken advantage of, so I knew she was going to put up a fight when the time came and boy did she!
I loved how things played out and Deacon got the chance to finally make a move on Tess. When she was surprised in the embalming room and he was there to save her, instead of freaking out more than she did, she got angry and she took it out him. Her redheaded temper really came out and I laughed at how she handled the entire situation. Deacon handled it well too. These two anytime they are in a room together you can tell they should be together, how everyone didn’t pick up on it is surprising to me, but the guys definitely once they caught on helped make things awkward for them.
This book was not only a romance, but a “save the world” book. Watching the guys put all the pieces together to make sure the “Day of Destiny” didn’t happen was nerve wracking. I was biting my nails, even knowing it was fiction, hoping they would save everything! My heart was racing towards the end of the book and I was freaking out. That’s how you know this was an amazing book! You had the sweet and sexy romance but you also had the thrilling suspense of the will they make it in time to save the country and the world?!
So much truly happens in this book that I want to write and tell you about in this review, but it would be an injustice to do that as it would take away the surprise to you the reader. I will say this book is something that I normally wouldn’t pick up, I did it on a whim looking for something to get out of my reading rut and it worked. I loved the banter between the characters, how the story flowed, and how each character truly played a piece in the big picture. This story had it all!
I was instantly drawn to this book by the cover, and when I flipped it over to read the blurb I knew I needed to read it, and I am thrilled I gave this book a chance. I have never read anything by Liliana Hart before and I definitely will be reading more by her now! If you’re looking for something with a bit of suspense, a bit of romance, and an amazing story to tell, definitely pick up The Darkest Corner today!
